New Year's and Graduation

2010 30 de Mayo Graduation
2010 30 de Mayo Graduation

December has been a very exciting month for the children at the daycare and pre-schools. All 13 schools celebrated the holidays with games and piñatas. 30 de Mayo, the newest school, had their first pre-school graduation for children starting elementary school. Self-Help has been feeding children Quality Protein Maize porridge with vitamins at this center the past 11 months. This is the first healthy group of kids to graduate.

All of the schools continue to show big improvements in the children's health due to the meals we are providing them daily.  They are gaining weight, growing taller and are more energetic. Volunteer mothers prepare the porridge five days a week. Each month a Ministry of Health nurse and the Self-Help staff measure the height and weight of each child to track their progress. Self-Help is pleased to see steady progress among the children.

Self-Help extends its gratitude to its supporters who are helping us alleviate malnutrition among the youngest generation of Nicaragua.
